School of Arts & Humanities


Graduates of Milligan’s English program go on to teach in public and private schools and colleges (with additional study), to do graduate work in English and related fields, to study law, to work as journalists, editors, and public relations officers, to study library science/information technology, to study theology, and to work in marketing, customer assistance, and other aspects of the business world.

The course of study in English language and literature is designed to enable the student (1) to read literature with appreciation, understanding, and a developing critical sophistication; (2) to write clear and effective literary criticism and analysis; and (3) to acquire a knowledge base which will allow the individual to pursue additional education or to obtain gainful employment.

The English major is available as a B.A. or minor.
